A Message to our Members: AFPSEWI Needs YOU!

drawing of Uncle SamVolunteers - We All Need Them!

As Chapter President, it is always interesting when I get asked how I got to be president. The easy answer, I was asked.

I started my volunteer service to our chapter as Treasurer thanks to having a bookkeeping background in my resume. But more often, the members that serve on our Board come from serving on a committee.

We have many committees that are already working hard to bring you programming, events, member services and communications like this newsletter. We cannot do what we do as a chapter without the many volunteers.

So now I am asking you to please consider volunteering your time to one of the committees that needs support; Education, Membership, Marketing, Fundraising Day Wisconsin, Sponsorship, and National Philanthropy Day. Each of these committees is important to the health of our chapter and are looking for new members.

I encourage you to get involved, and if you have an interest in serving on the Board of Directors in the future this is a great first step. Please visit our website at: https://www.afpsewi.org/leadership-opportunities and fill out the short form from the “Join a committee” link.

For an incentive, the United Performing Arts Fund has graciously donated a performance voucher that will be raffled off for those joining a committee in the months of January, February and March. A UPAF voucher is good for two tickets to either First Stage, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Florentine Opera, Milwaukee Rep or Skylight Music Theatre.
